Definition: Adjudicate

Adjudicate (verb)

A formal judgment or decision is made about a problem or dispute. So basically, a judge (or jury, or other authorized officials) decides who is right on a particular matter.

Another form of the word is ‘adjudication’. Adjudication is the legal process by which a judge reviews evidence and hears arguments. Those arguments are usually from attorneys representing their clients in opposing parties. The judge then can come to a decision which determines rights and obligations between the parties involved.
